is now back on the job serving and protecting the people of springfield, massachusetts. i'm also pleased to say nevada law also includes robust protections against this type of discrimination. officer carney testified before the house of representatives in 2007 and shared his story. mr. president, this is what he said: "i'm god cop. i've lost two and a half years of employment, fighting to get that job back because i'm gay. i never would have been able to do that had i not lived in massachusetts or in one of the handful of other states that protect employees from discrimination. sadly you mr. president, not everyone is able to fight back like officer carney. in 33 states, lesbian, gay yo cn be fired or harassed just for being who they are. sam hall was terrorized by his coworkers for seven years because he was gay. mr. hall just wanted to make a living. but supervisors told him he would have to endure the persecution if he wanted to keep his job. west virginia is one of 33 states with no protections against this type of discrimination. that's why, mr. president, i so admire joe manchin f

worked on the massachusetts plan. it didn't raise taxes our cut medicaid and this one does. if they can't get the website right, what makes you think they will be able to get the health care itself correct. >> the ones calling for delay now are not the republicans, it's the democrats. there is about a dozen says let's push back the mandate, the penalty, joe mansion of west virginia saying let's delay it a year. we're going to talk about gop problems, but how big of a burden could obama care be for democrats in 2014? >> it could potentially be a very significant burden, chris. i imagine most of the people calling fe delay are -- for del are up for reelection. i think the political impact depends on two things. number one, the behavior of the republicans. if that was the case, that will shift attention away. assuming they don't do that, let's turn to substance. if there are many more cancellations, that's the big problem. if you look at the american people who have coverage really care about, it's have u lower cost increases. it would be because of other factors, that will politically be

leader in the senate having lost his 60th vote in a special election in massachusetts that year, felt he could not pass anything. he could not achieve cloture with only 59 democrats to vote in favor of that motion for cloture. that's the reason why not one word was changed between christmas eve 2009 and the time this bill was actually passed. but if h.r. 3590, after it came back from the senate, came to the rules committee, did it come to the house under an open rule? no, it did no. it was a closed rule. we were kept out. process. it's hard to it -- kept house of the process. it's hard to -- the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman is recognized. mr. burgess: when a bill of this magnitude came with so little debate, so little input from the minority, yeah, we got a one-page bill before the house today. this was a 2,700-page bill that affected every man, woman, and child in this country, not just today, not just tomorrow, but for the next three decades they'll be living under this and it came under a closed rule. i reserve the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman reser
, massachusetts, for democrats. you are on with trita parsi. i agree with the caller earlier who was saying why is netanyahu screaming about orion -- iran having nuclear weapons? for them to have that to have energy throughout their country and it creates jobs for their country. think we need to put israel in check. it seems like they are trying to take focus off of what they are doing in their country. they are taking all of the land andans' dividing that country. -- he feels pity because they are treating me palestinian people the same way at germany treated the israeli people. host: do think that is a fair assessment? guest: i would say that because the iranians are -- of the mpt. the and national -- the international community is -- i don'tthe fact think they need a nuclear weapons. nuclear and causes a nuclear domino effect in the middle east, then you have other countries starting nuclear weapons programs. that would eliminate a conventional superiority that iran has. it would eight p.m. -- it would -- mistake for them to host: an e-mail that we received on the subject. in what hetes doe
programs like medicare part d come and the massachusetts help reform that was obamacare's predecessor. most people tend to sign up for coverage closer deadlines, so that is what the administration hopes will vindicate them after the first month, which did not go well. host: but if the deadline is not until march, why were expectations so high to begin with? people do not have to sign up until later. guest: that is right here at march is a key deadline because it is obviously the end of a six-month enrollment period. the other date is december 15, which is when people choose plans if they want them to kick in in january. there are a lot of people losing their coverage right now and they're going to want to remain insured, and for them, the middle of december is the crucial deadline. the reason that that is tough for the administration is it comes only two weeks after the deadline, where they say they're going to have the website fix, which is the end of this month, so if they cannot have healthcare.gov up and running, functioning enough for millions of people to actually buy their health pla

at a time. " i live in massachusetts. they just got rid of all of the black american workers, i don't know if you are aware of this or [indiscernible] i am not familiar with what you're talking about. if they hire a foreign worker, they can claim them as a business expense and get them will-- and get back there wages from the government. this was in massachusetts? caller: a company came in here in 2010 and just started firing black people, two people at a time. host: that is tyrone in boston. chart -- do you ever worry that your total income will not be enough to meet your family's expensive -- expenses? in 1971, it was 8%. in 2013, it was 19%. up to 32% in 2012 forward workers -- for workers making less than $35,000. caller: thanks for c-span. i was an engineer. i am out of work 15 years. the visa, it is for six-year stay. who they think have stopped looking, we drifted into a cash society. you have to know the value of every stupid thing. books, cars, all kinds of things. when people in the neighborhood get it out of work, you get good deals and you can quadruple and triple your money. c
was the scott brown win in massachusetts and the special election. a lot of national attention to that money. and the center -- at the center of that race was obama care. hasn't passed yet. but scott brown was supposed to be the senator who could stop it. and then the 2010 election, republicans won and the wave in the house made some gains in the senate but weren't able to win some of the key races. and think about what republicans have lost since president obama was first elected in 2008. 2012, mitt romney lost that election. he explicitly did not run against obama care. did not run on health care. he was trying to get away from his record with romney care in massachusetts. so i think that republicans are looking at this from a political perspective, they've got to see -- they've got to see victory and criticizing obama care in going after and being aggressive on health care. but that's also going to require a plan of their own. something that there's a lot of things in the house, a few in the senate, that the republicans are throwing out there, good ideas, i think. but we need to have some

[video clip] >> those who got cancellation notices do deserve and have received an apology from me. they want, whether we can make sure that they are in a better place and that we meet that commitment. by the way, it is important to note that a whole bunch of folks in congress and others who made this statement, they were entirely sincere about it. the fact that you have got this percentage of people who have had this impact, i want them to know that their senator or congressman, they were making representations based on what i told them and what the white house and the administrative staff told them. it is on us. it is something that we intend to fix. host: kyle cheney? guest: the president has been getting an earful from congress, democrats in congress, about the fact that they stuck their necks out for him when he said if you
